Parallax converter not working

My son has a Forest River with a Parallax converter that is not powering the coach. 110V to the unit, both 50A output fuses are good. No output voltage anywhere. Any other fuses in the unit that anyone knows of?

There are no other fuses in the nit. Your son needs a new charger.

There may be a circuit breaker on the battery control circuit board. I'm not sure what components are used on a Forest River, but the RV Products battery management board has a breaker where the converter feeds power to 12v system. There will be a tiny push button on the edge of the circuit board.

The RVP battery control circuit board also contains the battery disconnect switch and house/chassis isolation relay.

That is the best news you could have. Get rid of that dog and install in its place a PD2260.

Update

He called me back and said that when he disconnected the batteries he had voltage on the output side. He replaced the batteries and all is well. Thanks for all your replies. Happy travels.
